Hillsong Live's latest album Cornerstone aims to challenge the world with life's big questions, in fact the title track 'Cornerstone' was written in the aftermath of the 2011 shooting in Norway. Stream a sample of it below! More details from Hillsong Music.com:
"You're no longer wandering exiles. This kingdom of faith is now your home country. You're no longer strangers or outsiders. You belong here, with as much right to the name Christian as anyone. God is building a home. He's using us all – irrespective of how we got here – in what he is building. He used the apostles and prophets for the foundation. Now he's using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all the parts together." Ephesians 2:19-22 (MSG)
Hillsong LIVE is the expression of worship from Hillsong Church - a local church with global influence. This local church creative team has a commitment to continually resource the Body of Christ with fresh songs of worship and a deep passion to see people connect with the Living God in a real and personal way. "Cornerstone", the latest album offering from Hillsong LIVE, was recorded in Sydney, Australia and is a reflection of that firm commitment. This album offers fresh, new songs to congregations worldwide, with a simple desire to place emphasis on Jesus and a prayer that people everywhere - regardless of circumstance - will be encouraged to find hope in Christ, the Cornerstone. Filled with songs such as the title track "Cornerstone"; new anthem "Beneath The Waters" (I Will Rise); and upbeat praise, "Running", our prayer is that this album will be a blessing to the global Body of Christ, filling churches and homes with the worship of an ever-faithful God

Based out of Orlando, Bellarive strive for a progressive and worship sound, they’ve been touring for the last 3 years and their new album The Heartbeat is one of the reasons to be excited about worship at the moment.
"This whole thing is fairly new for us," says Sean Curran, the group's lead vocalist, keyboardist and principal songwriter. "We met at our home church and felt like kindred spirits pretty quickly.
"We felt like God was doing something in our hearts and in our community, so we just embarked on this journey to try to figure out what exactly that vision was."
"We were leading worship a lot together but hadn't really looked past that," Sean says. "We started getting these opportunities and God began to place these song ideas on our hearts, so we started meeting up once a week just to figure out what we should do with all this.
"Most music is meant to bring attention to the artist, maybe for some simple enjoyment. It's all kind of focused on the stage," Curran says. "Worship music creates a space for people to step into, to direct their attention, their hearts, their souls and their focus, to God.
